This version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s tale about a scientist who develops a potion that separates man’s good and evil natures accentuates the emotional characteristics of the Hyde figure, rather than the terror angle.

Ingrid Bergman was originally cast as Jekyll’s fiancee, she eventually played barmaid Ivy Peterson, with the fiancee role going to Lana Turner.
